Although it’s a sequel, there’s nothing remotely related to the first film except the abundance of girls. As ridiculous as Sorority House Massacre II is, at least director Jim Wynorski isn’t trying to fool anyone (especially considering one of its many alternate titles was Jim Wynorski’s House of Babes). Resultantly, it’s also a lot more fun. It clearly only exists for senseless amounts of gratuitous nudity and laugh-out-loud funny scares. Wynorski brings a sarcastic sense of humor to the whole dimwitted, bloody ordeal. This film is as plagued with flashbacks as the previous one – once again the entire film is a flashback, with another explanation flashback sequence to set up the paper thin story (to further distance itself from the title, the footage is reused from the Slumber Party Massacre series).

Five well-endowed college girls move into the old Hokstedter house, a foreboding mansion that has been vacant for five years due to a heinous murdering spree rumored to have taken place there. Creepy neighbor Orville Ketchum (Peter Spellos), considered to be “300 pounds of bad news” by the local cops, fills them in on the slaughter, further freaking out Linda (Robyn Harris or Gail), Jessica (Melissa Moore), Kimberly (Stacia Zhivago), Suzanne (Michelle Verran or Barbii), and Janey (Dana Bentley) – can we assume anything from the fact that most of the cast has several porn star-like monikers? Further in, there’s an excessive strip club scene featuring Satana McVixen (played by Savannah or Shannon Wilsey). After the frightened girls carefully shower, slip into see-through nighties and experiment with a Ouija board, the ruthless massacre begins.

If you’re paying attention to the plot, you’re completely missing the point of this cheesy, mindless, blood-splattering, erotic flick. The cinematography is actually hilariously inventive, cutting between phrases like “He’s harmless,” to a shot of Orville hungrily eyeing the sorority house. The camera angles always seem to favor the female form, viewing up from about chest high and in closeup. Every girl unhurriedly changes into lingerie in plain view, and of course showers before bedtime (somehow their breasts must have gotten really dirty, since they keep rubbing them with soap over and over).

From the campy opening title sequence to the pitifully eerie music by Chuck Cirino, it’s quite evident that no one is taking the “massacre” idea seriously anymore. This isn’t horror – this is pure comedy. The tagline says it all: “It's Cleavage vs. Cleavers and the result is Delta Delta Deadly!” As far as sultry-girls-in-lingerie-being-attacked-by-a-maniac films go, Sorority House Massacre II is pretty high up on the list. And as the disclaimer at the end of the film proves, it’s all in good fun: “No girls were actually hurt or mistreated during the production of this film.”
